1. I’ve wanted to travel Europe, especially Italy, for some time now. I know that I would probably be making that trip by myself or with my mom. Since she is from Ireland, I am no stranger to the country, and have often ventured out on my own. Italy is a country I definitely want to visit but haven’t managed to just yet. Thank you for sharing your experience and tips, it’s definitely helpful to see the experiences of a fellow female traveler.

  2. We had read so much negativity about Naples, the crime, being dirty, it isn’t safe…etc. After spending a week there, we’re so glad we went against those thoughts. We would absolutely recommend anyone interested in a concentration of all things Italy, to visit Naples and like you said, eat some PIZZA!

    Great post!

  3. Hello Lori,

    I am looking forward to visiting Naples. I had no bad encounters with Airbnb so far and thought it would be great to stay in an Airbnb flat in Naples.
    I would love to hear more – why you see them as a risk, compared to a hostel or hotel.
    Thank you!

    Hey! Thanks for the great advice. I would like to ask how the language was? I only speak English with no Italian or Spanish. Also, why would you not recommend airbnb for single travelers?

    • I was able to get by in Naples finding enough people who spoke English.

      Looking back now I actually think airbnb is fine for solo travelers. However when I wrote this post airbnb was quite new and so was I yo solo travel so I preferred hotels.

      Hope that helps and happy travels!

    Thank you for your post. I was between Rome and Naples for my weekend solo travel in November. Your posts totally sold me and eliminated my fears of Naples. Thank you for writing about this!
